John Seman’s Lil Coop Sextet
Lil Coop is a new ensemble from Monktail Creative Music Concern bassist and director John Seman. The band’s core is made up of longtime musical conspirators Seman and drummer Mark Ostrowski with mcmc comrades Stephen Fandrich on piano and Bill Monto on alto sax. The front line is strengthened by the addition of versatile and dynamic musicians Darian Asplund on tenor and Robby Beasley on trumpet. The group will present new compositions by John Seman.
One of Seattle’s busiest mercenary bassists, Seman performs regularly with Ask the Ages, the Wally Shoup Quartet, the Simon Henneman Quartet, Dennis Rea, and others while also organizing and performing with the Monktail Creative Music Concern.
